NYCFC Defies Odds, Defies the Doubters, Capture Their First MLS Cup

New York. - 8 months back I covered my first game with the New York City Football Club. For the team that lost a heart breaker in a shootout loss the previous year and due to Covid hadn't seen a home soccer game since the 2019 season, it was a chance of impassioned renewal. And it started with a bang in a 5-0 win over Cincinnati to start the season the right foot. During the season, the team suffered through injury, poor playing conditions (more on that later) as well as it's longest goal drought in its history with 509 minutes straight without a goal. They were a team that excelled at home in the Bronx but struggled elsewhere but despite all the setbacks pulled out a 4th place finish in a tight MLS Eastern Conference.

NYCFC Score 6 For The First Time; Crush DC United

New York. - Yogi Berra is credited with the phrase “90 percent of the game is half mental.” Witticism aside, there's much to be said about that line as it took the Gents in Blue exactly 35 seconds to score the game winner in last night's match against division rival DC United last night on route to a crushing 6-0 win to vault themselves into 5th place in the East with 3 matches remaining. This was one of those matches where literally everything went right; from 3 goals in the first 11 minutes to a clean sheet on a largely untested Sean Johnson to 6 goals in a match for the first time ever.
